But the problem with an overall time limit is that the hung test
eats up all the remaining time and the following tests are not run.
This has a been a nuisance for several releases where for example
testing via a batch queue does not run all the tests because of hangs.

For those using mpirun (not me at osc) see -maxtime min and -cpu time.
On the other hand a shell wrapper of mpibla for use via DO_PARALLEL
"Should be pretty simple for some Bash whizz to figure out."
